Hi!

I like this theme, but GD Star Rating plugin has disappeared from WordPress because of a big security hole. Is it possible to update the theme to a new rating plugin? or what can we do?

Thanks!

GhostPool

Hi there,

Where did you read that the plugin was removed due to a security hole?

If the plugin is insecure then I will have to replace it with another rating system, however this is not going to be an easy job and will take time.

Hi there Dan,

Nice Theme. A few pre-sale questions if I may:

- Can I change the default sort order? (eg switch from “Date” to “Site Review”)

- Are Reviews & ratings subject to moderation from the admin?

- Does it aggregate the score of all the user ratings and sort on the aggregate?

- Can I have 2 levels of category (eg Sci-Fi > English) and have an index page for each level, showing the only the corresponding entries?

Eg: demo.ghostpool.com/reviewit/genres/sci-fi/ would show all sci fi movies

demo.ghostpool.com/reviewit/genres/sci-fi/English would show just the sci fi movies in English

Note: There does seem to be a problem with the “GD Star Rating” plugin- it’s not possible to download it from http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/gd-star-rating

- Would it still be possible to install and run the ReviewIt theme (in the hope that the “GD Star Rating” plugin gets fixed without any drama).

Thanks!

Hi there,

1) There’s no option to do this but I provide information on how to do this in my FAQs section on the support site.

2) I don’t believe ratings themselves can be held in moderation, but if you restrict ratings to the comments section only, since comments can be held in moderation it also holds the users rating in moderation.

3) No this cannot be done unfortunately.

4) The GD Star Rating plugin is now included with the theme so you will still be able to use it.

Charlie Eriksen has discovered a security issue in the GD Star Rating plugin for WordPress, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions.

The security issue is caused due to a missing authentication and authorisation check in the wp-content/plugins/gd-star-rating/export.php script and can be exploited to access otherwise restricted functionality and export potentially sensitive information (e.g. user names, votes, email, and IP addresses). you better change that plugin or it will affect sales, i was planning to buy this also just now but will pass for now.

Hi there,

I have to ask, but did you actually read either of these articles you referenced?

The Charlie Eriksen article you quoted was published in 2012 and clearly says that this security issue was fixed in GD Star Rating v1.9.19 a long time ago.

The second article from Dev4Press explains exactly why they are no longer continuing to maintain GD Star Rating – the main reason being that it the framework is too involved now and requires too much work to maintain. They do say they are planning on offering a new rating plugin in the future. Nowhere does it say this has anything to do with the security issue that was already fixed.

I hope that clears things up for you. :)

Default-user

yes but when you read everything about it, you can see this plugin was really stopped because it is a security risk…why you think its been removed from wordpress…

GhostPool

No I don’t see that all. Please give me a link to a page where it says the plugin was taken down because it is a security risk. As I already said the security risk was fixed over a year ago and the creator of the plugin explained why he removed the plugin which has nothing to do with a security risk.

Would it be to optimize for mobile devices possible the theme?

GhostPool

Hi there,

The theme is not responsive unfortunately, if this is what you’re asking.

Hello, I am going to buy this theme, but after this I have one question: For example in the demo article called “L.A Noire” the first tab “Review” Can I paginate this? I explain it: I will write a very extensive article and i want that when the users clic in review the users see a little part of the article and then click in the pagination. And other and last question, how it looks the wp-admin? To personalize the tabs.

Thanks a lot!

GhostPool

Hi there,

1) Yes you can paginate the first “Review” tab using the nextpage tag to separate content. :)

2) Here’s an image of the back end which shows how the tabs are created on review pages: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B50MisuSc55AQXc3amJMR1lzdU0/edit?usp=sharing

Wow, what an amazing theme! Well done sir. I would buy it if it was responsive and showed it could be a eCommerce store I like the full design very much, Probably one of the best looking themes on here.

GhostPool

Thanks a lot. I have a new review theme on the way that offers all the features of ReviewIt and more, and is also responsive.

Hey, you theme can edit as allkeyshop.com ?

thank.

GhostPool

Hi there,

This buyer has made a lot of their own customizations to the theme, many of these features do not come with the theme.

hi,Is this theme has any plug in such as facebook “like”button? thank you.

GhostPool

Hi there,

The theme doesn’t provide this feature but Facebook provide a Like button script that can be inserted into themes or you can use one of the many plugins available at http://wordpress.org/plugins/search.php?q=facebook+like

Hi GhostPool great theme! Any word on replacing “GD Star Rating plugin”? It seems I am unable to download it from the WordPress Repository.

Default-user
Hi I’m not sure if you’ve tried recently but it seems they’ve remove the links to download GD Star Rating from their own website. http://v1.gdstarrating.com/downloads/plugin/

Hi there,

The GD Star Rating plugin comes with the theme, you do not need to download it. :)

Hello:

Good morning my name is Ricardo Triana, I´m a front end developer and web/mobile designer. Im looking to purchase a template for my startup company. What Im looking for is:

-User registration/sign up -User can edit their profile (avatar image and data) and publish. Profile can be viewed by all registered and not registered users. -User geolocation. Can user have a geolocation option when creating profeile. -Advanced search app -Responsive and extremely mobile friendly -Chat aplication or some kind of comment aplication so users can interact in a private/public manner. -User can create a post/page with custom fields, and will only be published after admin authorization. This post/page can be tagged so that it can be easily found by a user when using this tags as search filters. -User can create and share a post/page with custom fields that will only be viewed by certain users. User should be able to associate this post/page with a certain user that is registered in the site.

I know these might look like a bit too much, but it is my best option, i need some kind of minimum viable product to be online in a few weeks, that is why Im taking the template option as my last resource. And I know that some of these functionalities can be achieved with plugins and son on. But Id really like to know if plugins can be installed without any trouble and that your template will be able to install these plugins with no conflict.

Thank you so much for your time, and I hope you guys can help me out.

Regards

RICARDO TRIANA

Hi there,

All themes allow user registration and sign up. The theme works with the BuddyPress plugin which extends this functionality.

BuddyPress allows front end profile editing.

User geolocation – Theme does not offer this, not sure what plugins do unfortunately.

Advanced search app – Theme works with Search Everything plugin.

Responsive and extremely mobile friendly – Theme is not responsive.

Chat aplication or some kind of comment aplication so users can interact in a private/public manner. – BuddyPress offers these features.

User can create a post/page with custom fields, and will only be published after admin authorization – Use a plugin such as Gravity Forms which works with the theme.

This post/page can be tagged so that it can be easily found by a user when using this tags as search filters. – Any page/post can be tagged and searched.

Hope that answers your questions. :)

Chris GhostPool, thanks for your reply! Do you think you can give me access to a username and password so I can check out the functionalities of your demo?

Regards!

GhostPool

Unfortunately I cannot currently provide admin access to the demos due to security reasons. All the theme functions are listed on the item page and if you have anymore questions I’ll be happy to answer them.

Hi one pre-purchase question.

Do you support BuddyDrive and do you have any demo or screenshot to show the layout of it?

Thanks

GhostPool

Hi there,

I’ve not tested the theme with BuddyDrive so I can’t say whether Buddy support this plugin. However I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t work.
